Care For Your Business Bathroom

Your business bathrooms are areas where you may not want to focus much attention, as you might feel like so many other things are more worthy of your time and attention. However, you need to make sure the bathrooms are kept clean and sanitary at all times. If you have employees and customers using the bathrooms when they are dirty, then you may end up dealing with a slip-and-fall accident. Also, you don't want customers to find the bathrooms to be dirty, germy, or smelly because this can really turn your customers away when they feel you are neglecting the care of such a hygienically important area of your business. Here are a couple very important things to tend to in your business bathrooms.

Tend to the urinals

A urinal that isn't tended to properly on a very regular basis can cause you a lot of problems when it comes to staying on top of the smell of the bathroom. The urinals have traps that need to be watched for signs of calcium buildup. If calcium does build up, then this can cause the urinal to not discharge the right amount of water during a flush. Calcium buildup can also reduce the pipe thickness, and this can cause a water backup.

In order to prevent calcium buildup from becoming a huge problem for you, you are going to want to have a plumber come provide the bathrooms with regular maintenance. If there is buildup, they will scrape the pipes clean. They can also provide you with tips on the right products to use to help dissolve calcium. You can have the traps routinely cleaned with white vinegar overnight to help prevent buildup as well.

Tend to the drains

A huge area of concern in the bathrooms will always be the drains. When the floors are mopped and when something happens like a toilet overflowing, the drains will catch the overflow. If this is not tended to the right way, then they can really stink.

The drains need to be kept smelling clean. You can do this by putting vinegar and very hot water down them on a regular basis. At the first sign of the drains being clogged, you need to get a plumber out because ignoring the issue can mean serious trouble in a number of ways, beginning with bad odors and ending with clogged floor drains that leave your bathroom unusable until things are fixed.
